Addressing the signing ceremony, Minister-Chairman of the Government Committee Hau A Lenh spoke highly of the aid which will help ethnic minority children access better conditions for studying and enrich their knowledge.

He thanked the Korean Embassy and KOICA for the assistance and contributions, expressing his hope that cooperation between his committee and the two entities will be further promoted in the coming time.

RoK Ambassador Oh Young-ju affirmed that making policies to promote inclusive social development so that no one is left behind is becoming one of the most important responsibilities of countries, including the RoK and Vietnam.

The project this time is expected by the Korean side to be a typical one showing support for the Vietnamese future generation's efforts for a better life.
